At the end of last season, NASCAR driver and Roscoe, Illinois native, Danica Patrick, announced she was retiring from racing. Her farewell tour would be competing in two more races, Daytona 500 and Indy 500. She has a history of success in both, so it seemed like the perfect send-off. Race one, Daytona 500, was this past weekend and there was no storybook ending. Her NASCAR career ended with a crash. Besides retiring, she has been in the news lately for another reason.
